These volumes form an appendix to the annual report of the Minister of Education and were issued as such. Specific to this volume: "The question of improving the condition of the Grammar and Common Schools of Ontario occupied a great deal of public attention during the years 1869, 1870 and 1871. Not only were the drafts of School Bills, with expositions of their provisions submitted to the government by the Chief Superintendent of Education, but the public press, the Members of Parliament, and the Common and Grammar School Masters in their Annual Convention discussed the provisions and details of these bills . . . . They were subjected to much more than the usual amount of criticism . . . so much so that the Attorney General . . . withdrew the bills from the Hoiuse for the Session" - taken from the preface. This copy shows minor bumps on the board edges and corners, minor wear to spine head and tail with spine being faded. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
